Welcome to Term 4 and our topic 'New life, new beginnings'.
We will be talking about growth in plants, animals and ourselves. This will lead on from our previous topic of traditional stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be planting beans and sunflowers and talking about what plants need to grow.
We will talk about baby animals and their adults learning new names such as cygnet, calf, foal and piglet.
We are concentrating on rhyming and traditional rhymes encouraging the children to hear sounds in words, letters, stories and poems.
At home it would be lovely if children could be encouraged to listen to stories and think of rhyming words and alliteration. Parents please talk to your children about what they were like as babies and compare with their skills now such as walking, climbing and talking.
